Crooswijk is a neighborhood of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Crooswijk lies between the districts Kralingen, Oude Noorden and Centrum. Crooswijk was once known for its Marines barracks. Many streets bear witness to a military history of the Marine Corps: Tamboerstraat, Pijperstraat, Schuttersveld, Excercitiestraat, Vaandrigstraat. Crooswijk also has an industrial past. Jamin, Heineken Brewery and many abattoirs were established there. These industries have given way to housing. On the Crooswijksesingel is only the monumental building of Heineken still standing. Crooswijk is one of the original people’s neighborhoods of Rotterdam (unlike many other people’s neighborhoods in the city, which originally were independent villages) and the district is strongly associated with the ‘real’ Rotterdammer.
